Beer drinkers in New Mexico will soon enjoy brews from the Last Frontier when Alaskan Brewing brings their bottled “taste of Alaska” down south this September. Alaskan Brewing Co. is partnering with Premier Distributing to bring its award-winning beers to market throughout the state.
“Alaskan’s lineup of award-winning beers has been requested by retailers and consumers in New Mexico for some time,” said Mike Breidenbach of Premier Distributing. “We are thrilled to be able to distribute this unique portfolio of beers across the state.”
Founded by Geoff and Marcy Larson in 1986, Alaskan has been brewing and bottling award-winning beers that reflect their home in Juneau, Alaska, for more than 25 years. The brewery researched the move into New Mexico for several years and is already distributed in neighboring states Colorado, Arizona and Texas. New Mexico will be the 15th state to serve Alaskan Brewing products.
“We have been wanting to make the move into New Mexico for a number of years, and since we have had such a great reaction in Arizona, Texas and Colorado, it seems like a natural fit,” said Alaskan Brewing Co-founder Marcy Larson. “We are truly excited to have such an extensive reach of our coverage of the Southwest with our Alaskan lineup of brews.”
The Alaskan Brew Crew bottles the unique character of the Last Frontier with historic recipes, local ingredients and glacier-fed water. Alaskan Brewing handcrafts Amber, Freeride APA, White, IPA, Stout, Smoked Porter, Winter Ale, Summer Ale and a variety of limited edition beers in the Alaskan Pilot Series. Premier Distributing Co. was formed in 1982 by Dobbs Management Service (DMS) out of Memphis, Tenn.
